Southpaw, we need to have a cubing party! Lol

I have fabric at home that I may just buy some metal clips for.

Fo sho! But it'd be more like.... attempt to cube, get really frustrated and end up just making flat hammocks instead party. That's how it'd go for me, at least. lol.

Greenmagick thanks for the link! I think I'm gonna raid Joanns today and see what I want to try my hand at creating.

Oh and I always just make fabric loops for mine, sew them into the corners. Then I can just use the shower curtain hangers to hang them

I made my own fleece no sew pouch today from my own design and ended up loving it. I'm going to attempt a hammock next- the design is from Suz's No Sew.

I couldn't really find what I wanted for a set online, so I figured I'd try making my own.

Did you ever find that they chewed at the fringey bits (for any of the no sew projects)? Seems like it could be a tempting invitation - start at the fringe and nom your way through the rest of the hammock! Although for a rat that wants to chew, it probably makes no difference anyway

They did on a couple of fringes, but for the most part they were content to chew through enough that they could sleep in between the two layers, lol.

Lol gosh as disappointing as it is when they destroy such pretty things, I'll admit it is super adorable that they just want to snuggle in between and be cozy

I spent like a gazillion dollars at Joanns. Okay only $65. That is (hopefully) for enough fabric to make 3 sets of liners for my cage - and if I planned it right I should have extras for hammock making, because Lord knows I don't want to spend any more money on fabric! It does end up being cheaper than buying from someone else though so hopefully it's worth it.
